side, how about 10 to 20 inches of snow potentially because of the real energy from the area of low pressure. so really it's a powerful hybrid. here we are still now a hurricane here. you can see where it is. right now the center of circulation off the florida coast from florida to upstate new york will be impacted by this. so instead of this hurricane moving like it normally would, getting picked up by the jet stream pushing east, we have a rex block. what that means meteorologically all you need to know it's going westward instead of eastward. with that about monday, maybe evening into the night time, we'll see the center of circulation come ashore somewhere between new york and washington. four to eight foot storm surge potentially in that area. that's really one of the first hazards we'll see with this. then upstate new york, western new york, this area of low pressure sits and spin and doesn't move as fast as it's moving now. the potential for maybe a foot of rain if it sits there. an inch an hour for a day, day and a half so that's where perilous situations come in with the in

storm and it has the energy from almost an area of low pressure like a nor'easter. tropical storm force winds extending out 450 miles and snow in the forecast with this thing. this is the forecast models pushing it and you can see the consensus with this, which is odd. certainly this far out, as well. this is the scary part. so, it brings it here making landfall somewhere between washington and new york city, then look what happens here, kind of just rotates and spins and that's the scary aspect. remember, irene in vermont all that flooding. sandy is rotating and spinning for 24 hours dumping an inch of rain an hour. so, this is the potential for devastating and deadly flooding. couple that with, of course, this wind field 70-mile-per-hour winds extending 450 miles out and the potent energy with this bringing snow potentially to the mountains on the western side of it. so, guys, this -- computer models have been for 25 years and they have never had to run this exact scenario. so, a lot of very intriguing, but scary things about it. >> alexandria, thanks. >>> a storm of this size can cau

and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai

notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the bay in another community as we saw with the trandzs bay cable. this enables people not to get the power from the power plants and enables the power plants not so much demand for them. i think it might be obviously not in such a complicated long way, but just to point out it's not just that it's clean and from solar and wind and that it's not from soot creating power plants. >> that's a point well taken to make sure we don't lose the opportunity to educate about the benefit of that choice. >> and this is a premium. there is a premium because it's a benefit to the air that we all breathe and share. >> thank you commissioner for that fee

gas, our nuclear, our renewables. we're going to get more energy, more jobs. and by the way, when energy is inexpensive and plentiful, it brings manufacturing back, lower prices at the pump, i guess you don't use heating oil in florida, lower prices for electricity. it also means jobs. i guess with abundant energy, manufacturing comes here, as well. we want more trade, lots of people selling goods and services around the world, there are opportunities for people to sell goods to latin america, and i'm going to make that happen. number three, number three, we're going to make sure our people have the skills they need to succeed so our training programs work better, and our schools are good. number four, i mentioned we're going to balance the budget. and number five, we're going to champion small business. we want to help small business. [ cheers and applause ] >> you know, small business is where two thirds of the jobs in america were created over the last 15 years. but unfortunately, under the obama administration, the number of new business start-ups is at a 30-year low. and that
